WELCOME TO DROPLETS 2017

JULY 24-26, 2017

UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Liquid droplets are of prime importance for many natural phenomena as well as for a broad variety of industrial processes. The aim of the 3-day international workshop Droplets 2017 is to bring together researchers working on droplets in the broad sense: from pure to complex fluids, from impact to evaporation and solidification, covering experimental, theoretical, and industrial perspectives. The workshop builds upon the successful Droplets 2013 workshop held in Marseille and Droplets 2015 workshop held in University of Twente. This year's workshop will consist of plenary keynotes lectures, oral presentations, poster presentations, and brainstorm sessions. The program will be shaped to stimulate group discussions and informal exchanges.
